Abstract [sv]

Cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) not an absolute contraindication to MRI Conventional cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIED) are presently not an absolute contraindication to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which thus is accessible for device patients depending on risk/benefit assessments. While current literature suggests that MRI can be performed without risk if precautions are taken, adverse events have been reported. The number of MR conditional CIEDs is rapidly increasing, and depending on device and electrode combinations, patients can now undergo advanced MRI at 3.0 T without risk, possibly with restriction, e.g. anatomy coverage. This article describes published guidelines, recommendations and complications that may appear during MRI and precautions to avoid and manage them. The recommendations made are based on a thorough literature review and our own experiences reported with the aim to increase the awareness of healthcare professionals so that device patients no longer are excluded from the advantages of MRI as a diagnostic tool.
